COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A British Pale Ale never tasted so fresh. We challenge our good friends across the pond to match this one. Can’t be done. We’ve honored the traditions of the great British Pale brewers of Burton-on-Trent using our patented Firestone Union oak barrels. You’re left with a mild blend of vanilla and toasted oak flavor touched with an elegant hint of English noble hops. DBA is the flagship of our company and wildly popular

I had this at Flying Saucer. Pours amber with a white head. Taste Carmel, biscuit, slightly bitter. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose has some slight caramel notes to it, with a little bit of toast mixed in. Taste is slightly sweet up front to me, then finishes a tad bitter. Fine, but entirely forgettable to me.

Underlying honey flavor, with some floral hops over it. Herbal notes as well. Not my favorite, but certainly drinkable. Probably better in warmer weather than frigid 2014 winter in Philadelphia.

Scrapersnbeer (1439) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Cereal grain and light hop aroma. Clear copper with a film head. Bitter start and long, woody sweet nalt finish. Plush, quaffable body. Us easterners will be surprised how mellow this heavy duty brewer can be.

DrunkSanta410 (193) - Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2014
On tap at the doubletree in Modesto, CA. Pours an amber color, clear. Aroma of spice, caramel malts. Taste is malty, caramel and spice notes. Some toast. Average carbonation. Not bad.

Very tasty, easy drinking beer for any occasion. I prefer this over the Pale 31 that is more on the bitter side

Caramel color, thin head. Nice appearance. Good hoppy smell, not overpowering. Even taste, lasting flavor.

12oz BB 11/07/13 Bit of a mistake on the bottleshops behalf with this one (they assumed it was the DOUBLE DBA), but more than happy to partake. Nice looking mid-amber body, good clarity, holds a dense white head. Subdued aroma; light bit of toffee and nutty malt, subtle vanilla and buttery oak character. Full bodied, bit of malt chewiness, moderate carbonation. Offers extra complexity on the palate; nutty, biscuity malt, some dark toffee sweetness paves the way for a bit of earthy hop and more of that buttery, vanillary, lightly toasted oak character, lingering on a moderately bitter finish. Something different, distinct, and altogether, tasty!
